STAFF WAS SUPERB. ANDREW WAS #1. BEACH AREA CLEAN AND SAFE. INSIDE POOL VERY CLEAN. GREETED WITH A SMILES AND FRIENDLY FACES
KITCHEN AREA..STOVE DIDN'T WORK PROPERLY ONE OF THE ISLES DIDNT WORK. REFRIG NOT COLD ENOUGH.
Balcony Steps from the beach Amazing view from the room
Very old furniture Old, cheap and rusty bathroom fixtures We stayed there for three days and the room wasn't cleaned once. Cleaning staff did come and asked whether we needed anything but never cleaned the room. Patchy wi-fi
The view and the food over all this is a awesome place to stay. The staff was excellent. I will be back
The lady in the room over mine would smoke on her balcony. They should have a designated smoking area for smokers. Also they need more shaded areas to sit
Shell Island Resort is fast becoming our favorite place to stay in Wrightsville! My husband and I really enjoy the ocean front suites and the excellent location. We enjoy our beach walks past the hotel and beyond the point - it's just an excellent property for couples who enjoy the amenities of a hotel but the privacy of a condo.
The only thing that could have been improved was that housekeeping didn't come till late in the afternoon, as we were coming in from the beach to take showers. As a result of coming late and being in a rush, they did not clean our rooms thoroughly.
The location with an oceanfront view. A place of restitution.
Having to leave so soon!
the view was wonderful on both sides of the hotel. the oceanfront view with tinted windows provided an awesome view
the food in the restaurant was not good the non-alcoholic drinks had a funny taste to them there were water bugs all over the patio area in the evening
View beach comfortable bed
no hair dryer no pots or pans for kitchenette not honoring do not disturb sign-house keeping walked in while I was on the toilet!
Room view was nice, the beach is excellent.
Outdated mattress and comforter. A little to pricey considering the age of the place. WiFi didn't really work was extremely slow (we weren't the only ones to notice).
Location and convenience.
Cleanliness of room.
Loved the room, 2 bathrooms came in handy. There was a functional kitchen and 2 TVs, close walk to the beach, beautiful views, GREAT Blue Crab Dip. Will go back as soon as possible!
I used Booking.com to reserve my room, upon arrival, Shell Island Resort did not have my reservation. After much confusion for them, they realized that Booking.com never placed my room on their list. However, I was lucky that they were able to get me a room. Doubt I will use Booking.com again, next time I may not be so lucky!
joanna at the front desk was great. maintenance man (ponytail) was great. staff overall was fantastic. the people were the only redeeming feature.
room was gross. sheets had dirt, mascara and blood stains. foul! room flooded and had mold. no one ever showed up to clean the room our entire stay. this was the worst overall experience we had ever had. unbelievable and unprecedented.
The resort is on the ocean and there isn't anything next to it on the left and the beach is very wide.
We stayed at an individually owned condo (most of them are) and whenever we wanted anything fixed the hotel told us it was up to the owner to fix it and he was out of town and couldn't be reached. The water tastes terrible and you need to bring your own because I tried to buy bottled water and most of the time they didn't have any. If you go, check out the room before you sign anything because if anything is broken, it won't be fixed.
Having only a buffet breakfast option
the location, the facilities. The rooms were a little small but absolutely lovely
the elevator was slow and not airconditioned. The restaurant needs to expand its menu
The oceanfront views are amazing.We found it relaxing and comfortable. The staff were all so helpful and pleasant from the check in to the restaurant.
The bathrooms could use some updating and the water pressure in the shower was minimal.
awesome view, beach pool EVERYTHING!
I loved the location, the staff, the room, restaurant food, and the outstanding view.
I wish the beach chair and umbrella were included in the price. Also, I feel breakfast could be also included, at least a continental breakfast.
the view of the ocean
the place was old and needs upgrades for the amount of money that shell island resort charges the rooms should be in better shape
We loved the room's set up and the view. We loved the pools and easy access to beach and wetlands across street, but the restaurant and room service was expensive, the garage was dark and sketchy and the whirlpool never worked. Other than that we will be back just for the location-just won't eat there.
Restaurant and room service pricy and not great. Garage dark and spooky. Whirlpool broken
Gorgeous ocean view. Very friendly staff -- especially the maintenance man whom I got to meet on several occasions (see comments about what I didn't like).
I had to specially request three times to be given a tub stopper; my young daughters couldn't take baths for the first two nights. No linens were provided for the pull-out couch; when I requested them, I still was not given any type of blanket. The kitchenette had ZERO counter space. Literally none.
Location. Size, configuration of unit.
Odor in carpet and TV in bedroom not working. Bathroom needs to be remodeled
The view from the room 414 is great looking out over the beach and the ocean. The beach is nice and wide and you can walk down towards the end and have a very private beach.
The bedroom was pretty small. It would be impossible for four people. Hard for two.
The beach was beautiful in front of the shell island resort.
The rooms were dated and in disrepair. (ceiling peeling, towel rack fell off, knobs missing on cabinets). The furniture in the living area was old and uncomfortable.
Loved the conveint restaurant was great. Bit pricy though.
Rained out for our whole trip and they offer no discount. For that kind of money I should have gotten something.
First room we received was in poor condition, i.e. stained carpet, dirty looking furniture. After complaining we were moved to another room which was (just) ok. Their were no wash clothes so I called the front desk and we did not receive any. The next day I called and they were sent to the room. I was very disappointed. .
